Nwn profile aventia 01 200x64

The World of Aventia is an online persistent world that has been up and running since Wednesday, December 25, 2002. Originally created by Ninina, the gameworld development was quickly taken over by Jason de Cordoba, a.k.a. Oclair Monanari, who at the time was hosting the project. In 2009, Jason de Cordoba had to shut down Aventia as a result of losing his host. He turned over the modules to the community, and Ralt Gaither generously volunteered to provide a new host for Aventia. Aventia is now being developed by members of its community, including Ralt Gaither, Grench and Kenquinn. The Gondolyn server had been connected to Aventia, but it longer is. The server vault is now separate and moderated Oclair.

Aventia is a huge persistent world of vastly powerful characters, nefarious villains, and hideous creatures. It offers great features, such as post-level 40 player character advancement, PvP battlegrounds and clans, tournament arenas, guilds for classes, player pick pocket protection, and more.

Aventia requires both expansion packs and CEP 2.3, updated to the latest release with the CEP updater. The servers can be found at 174.143.208.156:5201 or 174.143.208.156:5205 for direct connections.

Player-builder contributions

Anyone that has experience with the Toolset and would like to build areas, monsters, quests, hak paks, scripts or items for Aventia should look at the submission guidelines[1] (also called the "API" for unknown reasons), which must be followed. Of particular note is the guideline that no creatures in submitted areas may be placed—they must spawn and despawn dynamically. Information about the submission should be posted in the guild forum at the BioWare website. More details on how to submit will be supplied there. After submission, areas will be reviewed for inclusion to the Aventia modules.
